Note Autobiographical

Every time he speaks of himself you sense something missing, something not quite true. It’s not that you doubt his sincerity — on the contrary, you know he’s making every effort to be honest. It’s just that by putting himself in the spotlight he has blinded himself to his own shadow, to the audience of alternate selves who watch him from the wings. He tells you what he sees, but all the while the real self remains invisible,like light seen from the inside of a bulb.

It’s like the difference between the way you picture yourself and your face in a photograph. The way you hold your breath at immigration, waiting to see if the man examining your passport will accept you for who you are.
